Where to Cash Out-of State Check

My husband and I have an income tax refund check written from HSBC Trust Company in Delaware, which is a cashier's check. We are from Georgia, and have no bank account. We normally cash this same type of check at WalMart for $3.00. This year it will not read the check for some reason. Is there a bank or some other place we can cash this check without paying a huge fee to do it?

You should be able to call any check cashing company and ask what their costs are. You can also call your local banks and ask what free accounts they have, or what their lowest minimum balance required account is, and consider opening a new account there.
